With all this rain we are having it looks like the birds are cleaning up, Roger...bet the worm population has taken a right hammering.

Good set by the way.

More BIF practice in the wind yesterday. My keeper rate is creeping up, but it's taking a while! It was nearly too windy for it; I had to put my left eye to the viewfinder, rather than my usual right eye, to shelter behind the camera so I wasn't tearing up! Anyway, I got a few shots I liked but I think this Fulmar is the best of the bunch.

Nice Fulmer flight shot ... when I try they almost always duck down close to the cliff face! :)

These guys were doing laps around the inside of a narrow cove. They seem to be much more prevalent when the weather is bad, and it appears as though they're sheltering on the cliffs but don't seem to like sitting still too long. They didn't seem to mind me looking down on them, but interestingly in all the shots from this close position the birds seem to be keeping an eye on me.

Only saw three birds close enough to photograph today - all in the one location, but they were all nice to take pictures of. All photographed with Canon 1dx and 400mm f2.8 Mkii - Little egret with x2 iii extender and other two with x1.4 iii teleconverter
